Publication date: Available online 21 June 2019Source: Pathology - Research and PracticeAuthor(s): Sziranyi Janina, Kaiser Stephanie, Wilhelmy Saskia, Gross DominikAbstractThis sociodemographic study focuses on the disenfranchisement, expulsion and persecution of pathologists in the Third Reich – a group that has, until now, received little systematic attention in scholarly research. The paper attempts to determine the number of pathologists who suffered persecution, the characteristics they shared, and the effects the repression had on their lives – both in the period from 1933 to 1945 and in the post-war period.The study is based on primary sources from numerous archives as well as on a systematic re-analysis of published secondary literature on the history of Nazi medicine. A total of 89 disenfranchised pathologists were identified and have been included. The vast majority of these pathologists (90%) were persecuted due to their Jewish ancestry or their relation to Jews. A good two-thirds of these pathologists were employed at a university until their disenfranchisement.For two-thirds of these pathologists (n = 62; 70%), documentation of emigration was found. Twenty-four pathologists remained in their home country; of these, five died in concentration camps and two others committed suicide.The preferred country for immigration was the United States (n = 19), followed by Great Britain (n = 13). Most of these pathologists...

Conclusions: SGM adolescents have higher burden of illicit drug use. Moreover, illicit drug use among SGM adolescents is indicative of depressive symptomology and suicidal ideation. Tailored and comprehensive programs are needed to reduce the gap in burden of illicit drug use between SGM and non-SGM adolescents. PMID: 31317813 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Hinrichs KLM, Steadman-Wood P, Meyerson JL Abstract Suicide rates are increasing in the United States and groups at elevated risk include older adults, veterans, and those with life-limiting illnesses. However, the treatment of suicidality at end-of-life has been little studied. There is emerging evidence that palliative care itself may be protective against suicide and there is some support for the use of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) at end-of-life. The overlapping mechanisms of palliative care and ACT are especially well-suited for individuals struggling with suicidality in the context of life...
